CQ Capras History

The Central Queensland Capras are the premier rugby league club in Central Queensland. Based in Rockhampton, the Capras represent the whole Central Queensland region from Bundaberg and Gladstone in the south, Emerald, Blackwater & Longreach in the west to Sarina in the north.

The Capras compete in the state-wide Intrust Super Cup Competition which is the direct pathway to the NRL and widely regarded as the second-best rugby league competition in Australia. The club also has teams in the Cyril Connell and Mal Meninga Cup Competitions for Under 16’s and Under 18’s.  The Capras currently provide a true pathway for aspiring junior players to play their junior football in C.Q. representing the Junior Capras through to the Intrust Super Cup Level and then onto the NRL.

The Central Queensland Capras has a rich history steeped in tradition and heritage within Central Queensland. The Capras club has nurtured and developed many young players that have gone on to represent at NRL, State of Origin and International level.
